How To Make Your Makeup Last
Have you ever wondered how to make your makeup last longer than 2-3hours? Have you ever applied your makeup like a pro only to have it looking patchy and rubbed off in less than 2 hours because of oil or sweat ? Well , I have. Especially because of sweat. I’ve always been on the lookout for a technique or hack that would help my makeup last longer. So when I stumbled on the powder before foundation hack , I was excited and sceptical at the same time. I understood that it could act as a sort of primer because I always set my concealer on my lids with powder and that helps my eyeshadow stick to my lids much longer. So I understood the science of it but I wondered if I wouldn’t get flashback or look whiter than usual because of the powder. So I decided to give it a try.

Rosewater skin benefits
We may or may not have seen products with Rosewater in supermarkets before. It’s even possible that we’ve used such products before but we may not know the benefits of this simply amazing ingredient in our skincare routine.

Rosewater has been around for a very long time. It has been rumored to be have been a part of Cleopatra’s beauty regimen. It is a powerful ingredient that should be incorporated in our daily skincare routine. It contains antioxidants and antibacterial properties that promotes healthy skin. 

BENEFITS OF ROSEWATER 
• Maintains Skin’s ph balance : Usage of different soaps , face cleansers, etc can change the skin’s ph level , thereby encouraging the growth of acne-causing bacteria. Rose water has a ph level of 5.5 and it would help the skin to maintain its ph balance. 

• Removes excess oil : When Rosewater is used , especially as a toner, it helps to remove excess oils and dirt from the surface and skin and this stops the growth of bacteria that leads to acne. In essence , rose water curbs acne. 

 Improves hydration: Just like our hair , our skin needs to be hydrated to be in its best state. Rosewater leaves your skin feeling refreshed and revitalized upon application. It can also be used as a setting spray before and after makeup application. It settles into the pores and offers optimal hydration to the skin.

Soothes redness and irritations : Due to its anti-inflammatory properties ,rosewater when applied helps to soothe redness and irritations on the skin. It is also known for its antibacterial properties which help in the healing of wounds , cuts and burns. 

Slows down aging : Skin ages faster because of the harsh UV rays from the sun and other harsh chemicals from products we use, rosewater contains antioxidants that slow down aging as well. Isn’t that marvelous?

This just sounds like it’s too good to be true but I can testify to the works of rosewater. Since I have included it in my skincare routine, I have noticed a significant difference. I currently use a rosewater toner by Nature Vitale. This is an amazing product and I definitely recommend it.
